Frank Dobson: 1940-2019

Camden Council is saddened to learn of the death of Frank Dobson, a former Camden Council Leader and long-standing MP for Holborn and St Pancras.

Frank was elected to Camden Council in 1971 and became Leader in 1973, a position he held for two years. He then served Camden residents for 36 years as MP, between 1979 and 2015.

In March 2018, Frank unveiled new council homes and a new tenants’ hall at the Bourne Estate. On the basis of resident suggestions, the new block of homes was named Dobson Court – a tribute to his public service and commitment to improving residents’ lives in Camden.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and all those who knew Frank. We thank him for his contribution to Camden.
